The Closed Hay Probe Power Kit quickly and simply extracts samples from hay/forage bales with a closed tube using a power drill. This is a great option for anyone concerned about cross-contamination and likes the ease of a power drill for sampling.
The hay tube is approximately 18" in length and will take a sample that is 3/4" in diameter. There is a plug at the top of the tube to keep the sample completely encased until you are ready for extraction. Firmly press the pin down to remove the plug at the top of the tube to extracted the sample. We recommend using a Tip Wrench to press the pin down. The tube is extra strong to withstand any twisting during sampling, and attaches to a replaceable, screw-on Serrated Tip that comfortably cuts through hay.
The wooden dowel rod is specifically designed to help remove the sample easily from the tube. The hex adapter allows you to hook up the hay probe to any 1/2 inch power drill (sold separately).
The Closed Hay Probe Kit includes:
One - Closed Hay Tube
One - Serrated Tip
One - Dowel Rod
One - Hex Adapter
Made with the exceptional workmanship and materials, our hay probes are finely machined for smooth, easy sampling, and long-lasting durability. All Oakfield Apparatus hay tubes are constructed of heavy stainless steel. All hay sampling components are interchangeable so you can add parts as needed.
